The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission has warned that there will be chaos in the power sector if the National Assembly criminalises the issuance of estimated bills by power distribution companies to unmetered customers.
According to NERC, a regulation that deals with estimated billing already exists in the power sector, stressing that another law on the matter may lead to a complete disorder in the industry.
The House of Representatives recently commenced moves to outlaw estimated billing of consumers by electricity distribution firms after the presentation of a bill sponsored by the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, which sought to prohibit the issuance of such bills to consumers across the country.
